Another day, another Galaxy Nexus release date rumor First it was November 7th, then it was November 10th, then it was November 17th and then it was Black Friday but now it's possibly December 8th.
The U.S. launch of the Galaxy Nexus has been delayed from its original early November date to a possible December 8th launch, suggests a leaked internal document.

Says the memo: "The Samsung Nexus is now scheduled to launch in all locations on Thursday, 12/8."

The Android 4.0 ICS device will have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen with 1280x768 resolution and dual cameras 1.3/5 MP. The phone has a curved design, is thin and has an impressive no-shutter lag camera.

Additionally, the phone has NFC support and LTE/HSPA+ support.

That its what you get for leaving Verizon do the job, remember bionic... If it was not exclusive to them I believe we would have seen it already, don't remember T-mobile having those problems with the first 2 nexus

I wonder if an import from the UK would be worth it at this point.

I could be wrong if so please some one correct me.

1 it has no LED flash so no flashlight.
2 it has now SD card so you can not upgrade storage.

next they are going to make the battery unchangeable.

I have a nexus one now and have been waiting for a new nexus phone that is worthy of replacing it. Sadly As close as this phone came I can not see myself wanting to give up on the flashlight alone.

I am not sure what Android phone is going to be my next phone but I am prity sure it is not going to be the Galaxy nexus.

Not quite sure about the SD, but even from that stock photo right under the title, you can see the flash.

Couldn't you just use the phones brightness as a flashlight substitute? That's what I do. I do have a flashlight app though

The flash is much closer to using a real flashlight. I also use the screen at times as a light when I do not want to disturbed the people around me. But I have grown very attached to always having a real flashlight on me.
